The Terminus

Pencaitland must have been about the most remote bus terminus used by Lothian Buses.  It is about 5 miles SE of Tranent in East Lothian, close to where the Tyne Water and Humbie Water merge to form the River Tyne that flows through Haddington.

In this photo the bus stop at the Easter Pencaitland turning circle is almost lost amongst the trees. 

There was no bus due for several hours when I took this photo.  The Lothian Buses service only runs to this terminus in the evenings and on Sundays.  But when it does operate, the buses run half-hourly until about midnight!

At other times, route 44 goes as far as Wallyford.

The Buses

When the buses do appear at this terminus, they are branded for Route 44 - harlequin pattern with black roof:  "Service with a Sparkle"
